What is a real life example of prejudice?

There are many examples from the major to the trivial. The most often cited Prejudice against a race, white/black black/white. Prejudice in religion, Christian/Muslim Muslim/Christian. Age prejudice, young or old. There are also things such as a mob screaming for the lynching of someone before they have had a trial.

Reasons for the cause of prejudice?

I think one of the main reasons people hold prejudice beliefs is because they have a irrational fear to the unknown.

Why people have a prejudice and what gives rise to it. Fear you said is one factor, though irrational we still have it. What other factors are affecting the society through prejudice.
